Je-Vaughn Watson and Koke are finding just how steep the MLS learning
curve is. The  Houston Dynamo's newest players are both learning on the
fly how to play together and adapt to a faster and more physical style of
play.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder. For Houston Dynamo right back Kofi Sarkodie, that’s why his call-up to the U.S. Under-20 national team for next week's training trip to France is extra sweet: It marks the rookie's first summons to the U.S. youth set-up in almost exactly one year.

After an unbeaten April, the Houston Dynamo are now winless through two games in May, with a goal per game to show for it. While the recent lack of offense is concerning, the way the team is giving up goals is causing just as much worry for a club that has seen its season take a quick and unwelcome change in tone.

Days after allowing two late goals on suspect plays to drop a home result to Colorado last week, the Dynamo gave up two goals that the team felt were self-inflicted to drop a second straight 2-1 result on the road, at Toronto FC this past Saturday.

HOUSTON – Outside of a tough loss Wednesday, the Houston Dynamo’s start in 2011 has mostly been positive. They have gotten points on the road, gotten scoring from their forwards, and had an undefeated April.

One of the few negatives, however has been their battle with injuries, particularly involving Brian Ching.

Looking to put the skids on a long winless run in MLS play, Toronto FC remain at home to entertain the Houston Dynamo on Saturday evening. TFC haven’t won in six league games after a 3-0 loss in Seattle last weekend, though they defeated Edmonton in the Canadian Championship at midweek. The Dynamo saw their long undefeated run come to an end at midweek, falling 2-1 at home to Colorado.
